Is there a way to edit a file you have uploaded?

If not can you remove a file so that a new one may be added to replace it?

The better way to handle this is to use the "Submit Corrections" button in the game entry noting that the old file should be deleted, and then upload the new file (usually with some delineation, such as version 1.1). The reason for this is that under the current software, there is no way for the admin approving files to know if there is an older version in the game entry, and editing descriptions of submitted files is an unruly mess.

But it would be neat if the person who submitted the file could simply click, say, a "replace" button next to the file and at, the same time, be prompted to send through the revised one. The software could make both files available to the admin for easier approval. Computers can be good for this sort of thing!
